Well, I've after being on the bench for months, GE-Que Barbeque is finally to the plate. Couldn't be more please and ready to pick this up. After coveting everyone's pics on this site (and Shirley Fab's), my day is very soon. Can't wait to get this christened. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=897949003601822&id=562392247157501&ref=bookmark

I love this one! For all of you Shirley owners, can you tell me why you went with one chamber style over the other, i.e. traditional round vs. cabinet?

03-26-2015, 08:54 AM
Wow - love the personal touch to this pit. Congrats. Nice work TQ and Tyler!!

I went with the cabinet doors...
doors are easier to open and will not accidentally slam on your hands
more clearance between racks
allowed me to add more racks
more racks equals more cooking space with a smaller footprint
they just look cool
only con is they cost more

Those Shirley's never disappoint. If I ever want a trailer mounted smoker, they'll be at the top of the list.

Will work for bbq

I went with the Cabinet doors as my wife uses the cooker too and she is a little vertically challenged. So, she can easily open the cabinet doors, where a bigger traditional door might not be feasible. As a bonus, I got way more room inside and I think it is just cool looking.

Dang nice looking smoker.

03-26-2015, 09:31 PM
Awesome pit, hope you win all the competitions with it. I get to go pick mine up next week. Can't wait to get it.

03-27-2015, 07:58 AM
Here, let me give you the address to ship it to. It is just up the coast at a little to the east.

BTW, just send the bill to the regular place. I thank you for your attention in this matter.

03-27-2015, 09:07 PM
I love that stainless rack and the rack on the back. Excellent smoker

Welcome to the family

Well, finally made it home from Shirley Fabrication about an hour ago (10 p.m.) since leaving around 5 a.m. this morning. While I was disappointed to miss meeting Paul, it was great meeting Tyler and Ross. Couldn't ask for nicer guys to deal with. They gave us the "nickel tour", helped me flip my hitch ball around (for right height), and went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with everything before leaving. Couldn't believe the reactions and thumb's up from so many people on the drive home. Every stop at a gas station became an extra 20 minutes just to let people check it out and answer questions. I guess when you get a Shirley Smoker, there's some popularity that comes with it. Great day, incredible experience, and I'm feeling like a kid at Christmas.

Those Shirley cookers are simply amazing. They have to be one of the absolute best values out there in a custom built pit. Congratulations, and good luck in competition!

03-29-2015, 10:49 AM
Nice rig! Can't wait to see what it will do! More pics!!!

03-29-2015, 11:43 AM
Just sent my down payment for a 24x50 model, good news as he told me it would be quicker because it is a smaller cooker. Hopefully by summertime.

03-29-2015, 08:46 PM
You'll love it.
